I wanted to try this product cause Heidi Klum told me to lol....initially I thought it was ok, I looooved the smell and the way it madr my hair smell...but theni started noticing greasy, oily, and buildup and didn't really pay attention to the hair loss till I read these reviews..I normaly she's, but now looking back I have to say I have to say I do see more hair in the shower. . But the worst part of it all is the dandruff it gave me!!! Ugh, trying to get that to go away...won't buy this product anymorw...
This is my second time using Clear shampoo. The first time I used the volumizing one on a infrequent basis, maybe one a week or so, so I didn't really experience that much hair loss. This time I am using Total care every other day without another shampoo in between and I have experienced quite a lot of hair loss.I am definitely going to definitely return this!!! You can get your money back if you still have your original receipt on their website.
I took it upon myself to email the company and told them I had concerns because of all of the people who have reviewed it saying it caused hair loss. This is what I emailed them:
Hello, my name is ******. I'm a consumer who bought the Clear Scalp and Hair therapy shampoo and conditioner. After using it I became curious to know others opinions on it and looked up reviews on it. Every review site I went on had several negative reviews all linked to the same issue: hair loss. This scared me away from continuing use of your product. I really loved what your product did for my hair. Can you please persuade me back into using it and reassure me that this product will not cause hair loss for me? I know a product undergoes a lot of testing before it is put on the shelves for the public to use.. but you just don't understand. This product received a ridiculous amount of negative reviews linked to hair loss!! Check out Makeupalley.com. Thank you for your time. Please understand I only email you because I have a very serious concern about my health when using this product. ----------------------
and this was their response: Hello ********, Thank you for contacting us here at Clear. We would love for you to try the product again as we have had many favorable consumer experiences when using this. If after you try the product and you are unhappy with it, please contact us here at Consumer.Services@Unilever.com and we would be more than happy to assist you. Thanks again for reaching out to us and enjoy! -Your Friends at Clear -----------------------------------
ARE YOU SERIOUS???? Wow. Never using this product again. They totally ignored my question about hair loss and if this product could be a potential harm to my health. If anyone ever asks me about this product, I will tell them they would be better off using a cheap Vo5 shampoo than this stuff. By the way, I am a licensed cosmo whose specialty is product knowledge. For me to say freaken Vo5 is better than this is saying something!!!!!
I think this shampoo is amazing. I have eczema and I'm hypothyroidic - which makes for a very dry scalp in the winter!
It doesn't lather as well as some other shampoos but it does everything else that it claims it will. Think about even alternating it with another shampoo if that bothers you. I use the volume one in the purple bottle.
This completely took away the itch and flaking for me and made my scalp feel amazing. A lot of scalp treatments have gross/way-too-natural scents, this one smells nice. Not super strong and/or amazing, just nice.
If you have a dry/sensitive scalp like me or you color your hair a lot, please try this!
I tried this product out when it first came out. And for the first couple of times, it seem okay. But it seems to make my hair fall flat and it seems like I was having more and more product build up on my roots. As time went on, it seems like my hair was lifeless. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. Didnt really do what it says.
Made my hair look and feel very greasy and unclean even after just washing. I can usually use just about any shampoo and have my hair look alright. This made it look very limp and stringy. The smell was alright and that's about it. I didn't finish the bottle before switching. I would not recommend this shampoo for any type of hair.
My hair is naturally curly, very fine, and below my shoulders. For the last year my hair has been falling out in handfuls, to the point I would cry just because I knew I'd be washing my hair that day and what would happen in the end ... Excessive loss of more hair. I've known for over a year that I have a sulfate allergy and have had to use sulfate free shampoos ever since. Nine times out of ten they smell awful, don't do anything to help my hair, and leave my hair dry no matter how much conditioner I use.
I never liked how this line had to use such a major name in all their advertising. To me, a product should speak for itself. I don't need a blonde bombshell telling me to use a product.... Anyway!!!
My best friend tried this line and swore it helped her own hair... And bc our hair is so different, I didn't take her advice. Then CVS offered a deal that made this shampoo free. So OF COURSE I will try it for free!!
This has been the absolute best product for me!!! AND I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING (natural products, Burt's Bees, loreal, thermafuse, just to name a few). I sent my best friend a text yesterday crying tears of joy after having used this product a week. My hair isn't falling out, the breakage has stopped/slowed dramatically, my hair is smooth and silky and looks HEALTHY, even after two days without washing --- my hair still looks beautiful and clean! I can even sleep on my hair and it looks good the next day. This has literally been a life saver for my hair.
I AMNOT PAID TO REVIEW THIS (to all you MUA-ers with WAY TOO much free time as to look into who reviews and how many products they have reviewed and the last time they were on MUA). This review has been my personal experience with this product that yes, I did get for free at CVS, but that has nothing to do with this review!!! This is my PERSONAL OPINION based on a products performance on my specific type of hair/hair issues.
I genuinely love this product and could not be more grateful to my best friend for urging me to check it out!!!!!!
UPDATE: I went back to CVS and picked up a trial size bottle of the total care shampoo. The shampoo and conditioner claim to improve your hair in 7 days. I'm on day 3 and I can tell a big improvement in my hair. It's softer and the ends don't feel as dry. The only 2 complaints I have is the over cheap perfume smell (like aqua net hair spray) and it makes my hair flat. For a drug store shampoo/conditioner it is my favorite. Hair: fine, down to shoulders, letteing blond color grow out.
This is not a fake posting. I was not paid to post and this is not my first posting.
I tried the Total Care line a couple years ago when it first came out and hated it! It made my hair super heavy, super greasy, super static...yuck! I used half the bottles because I thought it was sooooo good for my hair. I finally threw I away and moved on.
A few days ago I was in CVS and scanned my card and received a coupon to try for free. I decided to try the total care conditioner again. Ive been using it for 3 days.
PROS: makes my hair super soft. Can run my fingers through my hair all day with no tangles. A very small amount (size of a dime) is enough to cover my ends to mid length. Rinses out really well.
CONS: the smell is horrible! Very strong perfume that lasts all day, night, next morning and doesn't fade away. Not even a pleasant flower of fruit perfum but a very overpowering cheap drug store perfum. No hair loss though because I don't put it close to my scalp.
In conclusion my hair looks very shiny, smooth, and tangle free.
I absolutely LOVE this duo!! I purchased the strong lengths formula, and my hair looks and feels so great... and it's more manageable and soft than it's been in I cant even explain how long. It has a great fragrance that smells clean well into the evening of day two, but isn't super strong or overwhelming at first. It's a similar fragrance to many other shampoos, but they've got the formula just right on this one cause it still smells and feels just washed after over 36 hours. I've been using Nexxus ProMend for the last few months, and I'll happily toss what I have left of them because this stuff makes my hair feel so much better! I haven't noticed ANY fallout like some of the other posters have mentioned, it still looks clean after two days (and trust me, I can't afford to lose any hair or go very long without washing or a I would look awful. My hair is soft, thin, and fine like a little kid). I struggle with dandruff regularly, and ALWAYS have major flakes and redness and itching, but my scalp showed almost no flakes and redness after using this formula and for the first time in months NO itching. I'm so happy I decided to pick up this pair. For those of you who think this is a fake review, it's not. I've reviewed a few other totally unrelated products in the past and I made the choice to try these when I was wandering through a Walmart store and paid full price for then just like anyone else would. I think its silly of the people who bad posted reviews of these products without ever trying them. Shampoos and conditioners work differently for most people, just as a foundation or perfume would. For me, or maybe for others with oily scalp, fine hair, and dandruff these products will give you the same great results as they have me. I personally love these and will definitely be repurchasing!!! :)
